If you have been reading our previous posts, you will know that we have been suffering great agony caused by weather conditions forcing the cancellation of way, way too many tours for far too long.
We were so looking forward to a predicted break in the weather on 17 and 18 February - boat traffic was crazy as can be expected, with nearly anyone with a boat that still floats trying to get out to Stingray City before conditions could turn for the worse.
And boy oh boy were we rewarded for our excitement with the most stunning scenery all around, and a wonderful surprise waiting for us under the water's surface at the snorkel site.
On board with us we had a couple who had been abandoned by another operator, - they found us & decided to hop onto the afternoon tour with us. They were enthusiastic divers and also had an enormous love for sea life, so what an amazing experience it was for them to see this young eel who is new to the area. She certainly seemed to enjoy posing for our Captain Mario and he managed to get some great shots of her! What a brilliant surprise to clear up all the gloom - she has us buzzing with excitement!
Let's hope she makes her stay a long one - we look forward to greeting her every now and then!
